Do I need a passport for travel between Slovakia and Ireland?

Travel between the Slovak Republic and Ireland

A passport is required for travel to the Slovak Republic. Irish citizens must hold a valid Irish passport when entering and leaving the Slovak Republic.

You should be aware that whilst you are in the Slovak Republic, you are legally obliged to carry some form of photographic identification with you at all times.

If you are a tourist or short-term visitor in the Slovak Republic, the Embassy of Ireland recommends that you make a photocopy of your passport and keep it in a safe place in case your passport is lost or stolen.
